Ab-Soul revealed the news during an interview on The Breakfast Club.
Fans of Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole have been waiting for a collaborative album ever since Lamar’s little sister Kayla Duckworth hinted at the idea last February. Well, it looks like the wait may soon be over after Ab-Soul revealed that the pair have “something in the works.”
Appearing on The Breakfast Club yesterday (December 10) to promote his new album Do What Thou Wilt, when asked by presenter Charlamagne tha God whether he had “a feature on the Kendrick/Cole album,” Ab-Soul’s initial response was: “I can’t speak on that. I wish I could.”
Charlamagne continued to press the Black Hippy member for details on the album, including how many tracks the pair had recorded together, but Ab-Soul said he “didn’t know too much about it”, adding “I just hope they use my verse.”
However, after some nudging from the presenter, Ab-Soul did eventually confirm that the album was happening: “They got something in the works,” he stated. “They been working on that motherfucker for a while.”
No further details about the album are known as yet, so in the meantime you’ll have to make do with these Black Friday themed tracks, released last November. For the project Lamar and Cole exchanged beats, with Lamar jumping on the beat from J. Cole’s ‘A Tale of 2 Citiez’, while Cole laid down his own raps over the beat for ‘Alright’, from Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly album. Listen below. [via The FADER]
